I am very disappointed with this expensive Christmas gift. The wool pills after a few uses as if it were a cheap sweater. I have paid half the price for sweaters made of wool that does not pill. If you are going to buy chinese goods, you need some real quality inspection in place. Remember the tire failures and poisonous dog food incidents?

          Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

          I'll admit that when buying online the first impression after opening the product is the most important one to me.

          The color is seldom what I was expecting or hoping for. Next comes size. The lasting (quality) effect is always a gamble I'm willing to take.

          This sweater from the opening is perfect for me. The color is just what I wanted. It rarely is as pictured .
          when buying online. If you usually wear a medium: buy the large with this sweater.

          I've read it "pills". Being ready for that I think I'll order another one of them so I'll have the same new look when this one doesn't look so good. Or maybe mine won't "pill" so bad.

          This sweater is clearly a first-class item. The handy-work is impressively attractive. It is a true asset for cold weather. Its neutral color makes it usable with most other outwear garments. It looks and feels great to wear.

          My wife bought me one of these sweaters for last Christmas. I loved it. But she accidentally washed and DRIED it. It shrunk to her size.

          I liked it so well I bought another as soon as it was available.

              I bought this as a gift for my husband. It looked as good as it did in the magazine but the quality was just not what was expected. Very rough material and just wasn't worth the price.

              Count me as another person whose sweater has fabric pills. I was quote disappointed to see it happen, ad I would expect Nat Geo to offer better quality.

              If it wadn't for the pills it would be a wonderful sweater, tjough I'm not a big fan of the army green color. Unfortunately, the condition it is in prevents me from wearing it ouside with no jacket. At least Until I find the time to remove the pills.
